GARLAND (February 18, 2013)—Tommy James White, Jr., 20, was jailed Monday, charged with capital murder in the death of his 5-month-old daughter.

She was taken to a hospital where she died Friday night.

Police believe White caused his daughter's injuries, but did not say how she was hurt.

Bond was set at $1 million for White, who was held Monday in the Dallas County Jail charged with capital murder of a person under 6 years of age.
